This kind of dragged to be honest. I enjoyed the stories, but they weren't very suspenseful or engaging. ( )

More interesting world building. In this volume the power of words is on display. The power that we give words over us and the power of the words that we give others. Watanuki is getting some interesting character growth. He is becoming more compassionate to others. With all that his eyes can see, it takes thinking about what Yuko says and sees to him open up more to the world. Domeki is a key player this time too but he is more in the background of Watanuki's personal growth. The art is not only beautiful but it is also used to help make the character's pain more vivid. We are really starting to see the world open up to Watanuki, as he opens himself up more to it. The story about the sisters is very moving but disturbing. It has a lot to do with the way that others see themselves in relation to one person.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars.

I really do enjoy the insights that xxxHolic gives on the Tusbasa universe. In this one we learn that the chocolate that Fai force feeds Kurogane did, in fact, come from Watanuki's efforts in the kitchen. However, Watanuki's Fondant Au Chocolat creation impressed more than Syaoran and company. Domeki also greatly enjoys the last one only to have a spirit come and claim the sweet treat, along with his soul! Once again Watanuki is relunctantly to the rescue of his erstwhile competition for Himawari's affection. In other stories Watanuki assists two twins oddly bound by the power of their words and meets a friendly ghost.

The further I go in this series, the more interesting the stories. Certainly one I intend to keep on reading. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 034547788X, Paperback)

It’s Valentine’s Day–and while Domeki is showered with chocolates and cards from girls, Watanuki receives none. To make matters worse, he must also do the usual chores for Yûko, which includes making chocolate cake for her and Mokona, as well as the treats his boss wants to give away as gifts. But when Watanuki discovers he has a shy and secret admirer who is not quite human, he finds that chocolates can be more than just sweets.

Then, after seeing identical twin sisters pass by in the street, Yûko makes a curious remark: that there are chains that only humans can use to bind others. Watanuki meets the sisters and senses that the relationship between them is not what it seems. . . .
